Internet & Networking There's an article today at that looks at recent trends around net-based pay-for services and the smattering of paywalls from News Corp to the NYT that are up or threatening to be put up, and speculating that this could be the beginning of a trend. Of course, a YouTube video rental site and a few large publishers putting up paywalls will make zero difference to the "free internet" on their own. But if they're successful, it could spark emulation. But could this be a trend that could snowball enough to change the nature of the net?

Actually, people pay for the internet connection, and if they want to view something on the internet they need to pay additional cost for those contents then people would not understand and won't use internet as much as nowaday

Sp by this logic, since you're already paying for the gas and the car insurance for your car you would expect the grocery store to you give you what you want for free?

Sorry but by your logic, the grocery store should use my car to sell the items. Otherwise it does not make sense.. and even so no way!

And you don't understand point. About how people would think. If that was once free for all, people would expect it free all the time. Are you an employer of a content provider company?
